My name is Deb. I am a 50ish year old female from Nebraska. I live alone. My only child is married and he lives in Montana. I recently lost my Mom from renal failure. I was her caregiver for several years. I was in a great big funk after her passing and frankly didn't give a hoot. I than decided I would hit the reset button on my life and change four things. Physically, Emotionally, Mentally and Spirituality. I am dieting but I don't want to say that I want to say I am making lifestyle changes because this will be for life. I have lost 19 pounds on my journey so far. I am walking and swimming. I coming back to Spark for the emotional support I have found here in the past. And I hope to get mentally stronger as I vent in a safe place about things that are triggering me to eat. I know I am an emotional eater. I eat when I am happy,sad, up, down or around. And I am a mindless eater at times too. So hold on to your sock folks I am back

    Hi Deb and welcome to our Managing Diabetes Group where you will receive lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. I will be here for you and try to help you on this journey to your goals.
    You have come to the right place. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I want to see you accomplish your goal(s). Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily. Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8 - 8oz glasses a day) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of weight loss and lowering numbers. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving.
    It's good to meet and have you with us. If I can be of any help, please let me know. I am here for you.
    God's blessings to you.
